TANKHOUSE developers announce the launch of sales at 450 warren in brooklyn, the first new york condominium designed by SO — IL. the project will host eighteen residences in gowanus, brooklyn. the architecture at 450 warren at once expresses the intimacy a private home and a dynamic shared community. residents will feel connected with their neighbors along with the surrounding neighborhood. with an L-shape in plan, the structure surrounds a spiraling, open courtyard and sculptural stairway that rises five stories in the central atrium. the announcement comes with new images to follow designboom’s previous coverage of the project last year.

designing brooklyn’s 450 warren, the team at SO – IL ensures that every level through the lobby to the rooftop is connected. rather than organizing the interior along typical windowless hallways, the designers uniquely weave covered outdoor pathways with walls of gently curving wire mesh. this allows light, landscape, and fresh air to permeate the open hallways. in this design, residents have the choice to traverse walkways and bridges that surround the center courtyard, creating open sight lines to both public courtyards and gowanus beyond. at the same time, each dwelling within 450 warren is exceedingly private, offering meaningful outdoor spaces with at least two private areas each to celebrate indoor-outdoor living.
developed by TANKHOUSE, the SO – IL-designed 450 warren will welcome its residents in brooklyn with an intimate planted garden in the center courtyard. this open-air space will celebrate natural sunlight and fresh air with views upward looking toward the sky. residents will enter their homes through private, semi-enclosed outdoor foyers — a gradual threshold between the interior and exterior. 450 warren will include three planted courtyard gardens with smart irrigation systems from netherlands-based metropolder; the first time this environmentally-friendly system has been used in a condominium in the united states.
SO – IL partner and co-founder florian idenburg comments: ‘450 warren truly embodies a new way of city living, especially as many have reconsidered how they want to inhabit their homes over the past year. with residences and common spaces filled with light from every angle, including from above and below, the barrier between indoor and outdoor living is blurred in an architecturally significant way.’
